Friday Randomness

I skipped Random Tuesday, so you get Friday Randomness.

First it was Rosie and Kelly. Now Melissa and Tammy? They were together almost 9 years. That's long for any celebrity couple, let alone a celebrity lesbian couple.

Larry King. Seriously? Giving very expensive gifts to your wife's sister? Gifts better than you gave your wife? No pre-nup? She should take you to the cleaners.

Gay icon, Alan Cumming causes a stir with his stand against Goldman Sachs. Alan Cumming: Why I Moved My Money - Huffington Post Good job! And an excellent point.

Enough celebrity stuff.

Yesterday I took my car to the dealer for an oil change. Which turned into an oil change, differential fluid change and tire rotation. To which they then tried to turn into brake fluid flush and change and transmission fluid flush and change. They tried scaring me, saying both were dirty and contaminated. I just had a brake job a couple months ago and happened to have the number of the mom and pop joint that did it. I had the manager look up in his records. Yes, they flushed the brake fluid and changed it. He told me there would be no reason for changing it so soon, other than lining the pockets of the dealer. I asked his opinion on the transmission fluid and he said the same thing.

I did more online clothing shopping last Sunday. Every pair of pants I own were way too baggy. Some way way way too baggy. So I splurged and shopped at 3 different sites, one of them Old Navy. Can I tell you how much I LOVE Old Navy? They rock! When I was trying to figure out what size to order, I found out that their sizing chart is different than the other 2 sites and I had to order two sizes smaller, instead of one! (Thank goodness I checked the sizing charts.) I was so psyched! Everything came yesterday and I immediately tried it all on. Everything fit!

Insomnia returns. I'm actually writing this live past 3am. Why? I have no idea, I just know that I could not sleep. Nothing going on, not the usual stress or what have you. I just plain can't sleep.

Heard about Larry King and it just makes my head spin to wonder what some people think they're doing!

I need less sleep too - not uncommon to be turning in until 4 am. Glad you had fun clothes shopping!

Visiting from TB!

I was surprised to see the break-up of Melissa and her gal too. I always feel sorry for the kids--even in heterosexual marriages as well. Doesn't anyone stay together anymore??

Sounds like you need a new dealer to bring your car to. What kind of car is it??

Hey, cool on the smaller clothes!! That's always good news. Now when you can't sleep, you can count the pounds that you lost. ;)

I love it when the size goes down! I thought the same thing about Larry King, isn't he on wife number 7? He's a playah!
